Juan “Baby Bull” Diaz
Juan “Baby Bull” Diaz
Former unified lightweight champion Juan “Baby Bull” Diaz seems to be in line for a title shot, as recent headmasters Adrien Broner and Terrence Crawford have headed north to 140 pounds, creating a vacancy.

Speaking of the Baby Bull, his gym which opened a few months ago is a roaring success, attracting legions of kids in the suddenly hip East End neighborhood.

Local power punching southpaw Regis Prograis appeared on the undercard of Jermain Taylor vs. Sam Soliman, is Lou DiBella looking at signing him?

After losing out on a chance to host Saul Alvarez vs. Joshua Clottey after Canelo suffered an injury, San Antonio is hoping another major fight comes to town in 2015.

The undefeated Charlo twins, after having a stellar 2014, are also looking for title shots in 2015.

Craig Callaghan continues his march up the ranks with more victories. Perhaps with a few more, a major British promoter would like to bring him back to England and show him off to the country where he established himself as an amateur star.

Erislandy Lara is looking to fight anyone who dares to face him at 154 pounds.

Where is Mike Lee?

Kudos to Leija Battah promotions, which gave free admission to a recent boxing show in exchange for Christmas gift donations.

Rocky Juarez returns January 26, looking for one last title shot after big victories against Antonio Escalante and Rene Alvarado.

Speaking of Escalante, somebody please help this young man. He has become a danger to himself and society at large. Numerous recent drunken driving arrests paint a picture that will not have a good ending.
